The only piece of artwork I've done since starting Biz College is about to leave home. "Lady Madonna" came about at the very end of my Xmas break when, after 2 1/2 weeks, I'd just gotten back into my artist skin. Needing some "instant" gratification, I turned my energies to making a collage of magazine images, old newspapers, a music sheet, artpapers, acrlyic paint, and crayons. In keeping with the season, this madonna materialized. Within it, a clipping from an Italian magazine reads, "Dire no alla perfezione" which I think is an important message, especially to women. When I showed this work to my Office Admin class this week, my instructor fell in love with it and claimed it for her own.
